Acid base disorders are a group of conditions characterized by changes in the concentration of hydrogen ions h or bicarbonate hco 3 which lead to changes in the arterial blood phthese conditions can be categorized as acidoses or alkaloses and have a respiratory or metabolic origin depending on the cause of the imbalance diagnosis is made by arterial blood gas interpretation. In acid base disorders and their treatment in the first chapter acid base chemistry and buffering drs gennari and galla analyze the stewart approach but conclude that the bicarbonate centered approach derived from the henderson hasselbalch equation provides all the information needed for acid base assessment and is a far superior tool for clinical application. A simple acid base disorder is a single acid base disturbance with its accompanying compensatory response mixed sometimes called complex acid base disorders comprise 2 primary disturbances pearls pitfalls compensatory mechanisms for acid base disturbances cannot return ph completely to normal and never overshoot. Chapter 14 mixed acid base disturbances and treatment one must develop a clear understanding of the pathophysiologic principles which underlie simple disorders before a comfortable approach to diagnosis and therapy of mixed disorders can be developed robert g narins michael emmett515 the principal reason that one seeks an accurate assessment of acid base equilibrium is to obtain.
